  About Paul Cunningham:

I served as a police officer for thirty years to the rank of Chief Inspector. 

I undertook the role of a senior investigating officer in homicides and other serious offences, national representation in relation to tackling violent crime, a leading figure in the implementation of neighbourhood policing, repeat victim reduction, redesign and implementation of fair justice and involvement in the national police integrity review through an attachment to Her Majesty Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).

I received police commendations and a national award from The Howard League for Penal Reform for leading work on the diversion of female offenders from the core criminal justice system. My career has provided me with the following skills, qualifications and attributes:

  • Experience within Criminal and Civil Courts
  • Criminal Justice leadership
  • Negotiation and Influencing
  • Effective Communication
  • Leadership
  • Diversity

Since retiring from the Police, I have experience as an ambulance care assistant and as a trained and qualified mediator and restorative justice practitioner.  These roles enable me to directly help reduce conflict, bring people together and to recover from traumatic life experiences.

Philip Kedge is a retired police Chief Inspector and the founder and director of the McKenzie Friend UK Network. His aim is to take family law out of the hands of solicitors with an ethical business to reduce conflict and acrimony, to provide a cost effective McKenzie Friend national service and to reduce the emotional harm to children.
